Hi there... Im just about to throw my laptop through the window.

Basically, my laptop has suddenly stopped connecting to the internet. It will not connect. I've tried a number of things to get it to work, browse the internet on my other laptop for several hours trying to remedy this problem.

I get a local access only/Unidentified network when i try to connect wirelessly, or wired through ethernet. Running windows vista on a HP Pavilion TX 1000.

Please please help. I Know its not a router problem as im able to connect to the internet on my other laptop, which runs XP. And a friends laptop, which is also vista, also connects fine.

Any way to get this sorted?

Thanks
